No Time

Sorry I've not posted but I really don't seem to find the time just now and when I have the time in the evenings P is on the PC gaming :-(

I really haven't managed to get anything crafty done. even dug a card out of the BOX for Sam's friends birthday.

This was the little lady. isn't she lovely. I had to touch the hair up a bit as Eve is a redhead.

I'm hoping usual service will resume by the end of the October week just in time for the SHOW!!!
Hopefully lots of new goodies will inspire me.

Sorry I've been Awol but I've not had a chance what with Decorating and Kids etc.

Haven't managed to make any cards but will share this one that I posted onto the FB Sugar Nellie challenge. A piece of cake was the inspiration along with a pintrest board of cakes to help. the colours inspired this.

I will try and do more

Tired and no motivation.

Been a busy weekend.

Yesterday it was Football, a SU retirement party (which I spent far too much at!!) and the Supermarket.
Today it was Housework, Emma's riding lesson, a family party for Sam to do cake with the relatives then his God-father Alex popped in, with a toy Bazooka!!!
I've just finished his card which could have been better but hey, he's 6 and won't care. I still have to wrap his pressies.

This is LOTV Rugby Boy and a DoCraft Son stamp.
It's coloured in the colours of his rugby training strip for Cartha QPR.

I also did a card this morning for Alex's daughter Rachel AKA Chach.

The stamp and sentiment are Ladybug Crafts Ink. Ideal for a teenage girl, or not so teenage!

Don't know if I'll get much done this week as we're starting to strip Sam's room tomorrow and aim to get it decorated, floored and a new window in this week.
Plus a Birthday party tomorrow and work on Tuesday.:-(

Today I've been...

Doing laundry. It never ends!!
Also feeling sorry for myself. I have a blocked parotic gland. Sounds serious but I probably have a stone stuck in a saliva duct. this means a very tender swollen face and an unhappy me while I wait for it to pass.
Made an Anniversary card for my lovely friend Susan but forgot to take a pic. I'll get her to post it.
With feeling blugh I cheated a bit and used a LOTV Love and Romance cute square and it turned out great for such a simple easy card.

I also made this for last weeks Thank You challenge on the LOTV Challenge blog but forgot to post it. Doing well aren't I?!

Stamp is Milly Cuddle Time coloured with Promarkers.
Papers are My Minds Eye Lime Twist.

If you like LOTV pop over and see the Sneak Peeks on the LOTV Ideas to Inpire Blog of the new release out next week. there is a chance to win some stamps too.

My next project is the Sugar Nellie challenges hope to post them soon
Have you all been on the Sugar Nellie Blog Hop? the new releases are devine.

Been lugging boxes out the spare room all morning.
It's going to be Sam's bedroom and needs a new window and decorated but it's amazing how much stuff was dumped in it. no idea where it will all go :-(

I have a card half put together and another 'idea' so here's an old one for you.

Isn't he sweet.

T minus 34 hours!

This little Lady is from Lili of the Valley. Milly- just for You. isn't she adorable?

Well in 34 hours I'll be free, for a few hours anyway:-) the return to school after 7 and a half weeks is greatly anticipated. the sigh of relief from all the Mums will probably affect the weather!!

Spent this afternoon with my lovely friend Susan. While the kiddies played I stamped out a pile of her Sugar. Lots of new sassy's to play with. lucky me:-)

I know it's been ages.
But here is my list.

The lovely Susan and Yvonne gave me a pad of  My Minds Eye Lime Twist paper, a Ladybug Ink stamp (The Converse and Backpack one) and the Rose Creations nesties.

I then got Small Circle and Heart Circles Nesties, card blanks, some card to match my new pad of paper a Do Crafts Happy Birthday Stamp and a new Burgundy Promarker.

Had great fun messing with the Rose nesties and have a pile of flowers to use. Made them from a hideous paper I'd never use in a million years thinking it would do for try outs but they look fab.
So there's my tip for the day to use up those ugly papers we all seem to acquire ;-)

I'll post some images next time

Da da!!!

How long ago did I say I'd post some images!

Sunday, 1 May 2011

Still no photos

I will find it, just haven't had a chance to search.

Dad and his partner Edith called in for a visit on their way home from her parents. Glasgow isn't really on the way to York from Bathgate but he doesn't see the kids very often. It's lovely to see them, probably not again till we go down in the Summer.

I Know, I know!!

It's terrible how long I've not posted for.
I've been filled with Shame as my friend has managed to blog almost daily, so I'm announcing my intention to return to the world of Blog.

Soon as I can, small boy allowing, I'll search for the camera cable and upload some of my recent creations.
I don't promise Daily but I'm going to try.
